    Cause they don’t know their worth
    And I think you need to stop following misery’s lead
    Shine away shine away shine away
    Isn’t it time you got over how fragile you are
    We’re all waiting
    Waiting on your supernova
    Cause that’s who you are
    And you’ve only begun to shine

What a fabulous card!! Nice tutorial. Thanks.

color correction


Suzy, thanks for the tutorials!!! Very helpful seeing how I have never even help a copic. I'm still a little scraed when it comes to ordering because there's SOOOOO many!!!! ;-p I will go my some of your picks though. THANKS!!!!


Your card looks absolutely fantastic. The glitter add that little bit of bling. I've been a HM collector since before the labels went colour, so I don't always have a coloured label to follow, which can lead to some interesting outcomes. I don't have any Copic's yet, (not sure how easy they are to come by Down Under, yes, I'm an Aussie). Any TFS, you have beautiful work.


Love your card! Thanks for the tutorial.

Hi. I ordered your copics recommendations and you inspired me to start a blog. Here is my first try with your tutorial.

I hope you do not mind me recommending your tutorial. I'm a new blogger and do not want to step out of bounds. Thanks Again. Deb

Thanks for your excellent tutorial. I have quite a few copics already...I think I have most of these but not all of them, yet :) I have used them on HM stamps but I love the way yours look. Mine have always been darker. Now I know why.


I really enjoyed the tutorial you made. I bought my first HM a couple weeks ago and I've never really worked with such a detailed stamp before, so I found it really helpful.

Hi. Your tutorial was fantastic. I just put a HM Copic order in based on your advice. Since you are a SU! demonstrator, I have heard that there is a list of Copics vs. SU! you know where I could find that?


LOVED the tutorial, but I'm such a huge fan of your work so that's no surprise :) I've just bought some promarkers and I will try your tips. I'm quite stubborn and want to do it my way, so it might take a while before I improve, lol.



Thanks for the detailed tutorial! I don't have any copics, but have been learning coloring tips in general to apply to my Prismacolors & OMS.

Thanks for the tips. You make such gorgeous cards!


Great card !

And thanks for the tutorial


Suzy.. your tutorial is FABULOUS!! Thank you ever so much for all the detail you put into this!! I'm one of those that emailed you for help on what colors to use and this info is soooo helpful!! YOU ROCK!!

Thank you for the clear tutorial on how to use copic markers to color the House Mouse Stamps.

I am slowly purchasing copic markers and use tutorials as a guideline for my next purchases.

For the HM images, I will list the Copic colors you used along with a color sample.

Would you please list neccessary colors that should be owned?

I am new to your blog and will enjoy looking through your archives.

Thank you.


Thanks for the copic tutorial. I am just now exploring the world of copics.

As for the Lily Kate stuff, I love Basic Grey, but I hated that collection and the die cuts. I was forced to use them for a design team challenge, and it haunted me forever.

Oh so darn cute and your coloring is fantastic as always! I just love the tutorial. You are making me want the copics.. Still holding out though. hee hee

Great tutorial. I must admit that i never know how with copics so just take a guess!! I will have to take your advice on board and try it this way to see if it will make it easier (and my images better). Thanks. x


Thank you so much for posting this. I printed it out to look at latter. These copic tutorials are so helpful to us newbies. I really appreciate your time and effort.

Marja Schellenberg

Thanks for this wonderful tutorial. I love to work with copics. It so nice to get some advice. Your card is fabulous. Hugs Marja


Suzy, what an awesome tutorial!! How sweet of you to do this! And your cards are just amazing!!


Thanks so much for this. I have been trying on and off over the years to get it"right". I am so fussy about "getting it right". I'll will try again.

Oh thank you for the tutorial on this! I do have Copics but I always had colored my mice with pencils. And what a fine selection of those mice you have! hehe...a dream for me!


I did find your tutorial very helpful. Thank you so much for taking the time to write it.
